Potential lawsuits aren't the only risks. Some projects may take an extended time to complete, requiring extra equipment and on-site storage facilities. Lumber, drywall, paint or special tools can catch fire. Thieves could help themselves to your supplies. The homeowner's property insurance policy may cover some of these losses.
Many do-it-yourself warriors will try to cram lumber and supplies in a car's trunk or wedge them into the back seat with building materials protruding from the windows. This can damage other vehicles and cause serious injury to passengers in the car. Your automobile insurance policy's Liability and Personal Injury Protection coverage's may pick up the costs if something goes wrong.
Remember that when you improve your home, you also increase the cost of rebuilding it. Having enough insurance to cover the cost of replacing the home is essential. If you built a home for $200,000 three years ago and have since added on without changing your insurance, a loss will catch you short. Tell your insurance agent about any improvements. Also, ask your agent about more coverage if you plan on a property addition, which would produce rental income. This is a business venture and your basic homeowners insurance may not be covered.
